How to Download and Install iOS 14. The day has come, today, September 16, iOS 14 has been officially released for all users with a compatible iPhone. Apple’s mobile operating system reaches u version 14 with big changes and publicly for anyone who wants to update to this new version. iOS 14 can now be downloaded and in addition to seeing the news, we will also see who can install it and how to do it.
It was first announced at WWDC 20, when we saw a preview. Subsequently and during these last three months we have seen how Apple has launched different betas polishing the system. Finally, last week during the keynote of the new iPhone 12 the company announced the final release date of iOS 14, this September 16.
Compatible devices: iPhone models that support iOS 14
Before we go any further, who is this beta for? The new version is not compatible with any iPhone, but only reaches the iPhone of recent years. If you have a very old one, better check the list below to see if your iPhone is compatible. On the other hand, remember that this year the iPads go separately with their own operating system, iPadOS. With that said, let’s look at the list of iOS14 compatible devices:
- 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max
- XS and XS Max
- 8 and 8 Plus
- 7 and 7 Plus
- 6s and 6s Plus
- iPod touch seventh generation
How to download iOS 14
iOS 13 in the end is still one more update of the operating system. It is for this reason that to download and update to iOS14 we just have to follow the same process as with other updates. In Settings> General> Software update the update will appear. After authorizing the update it will be downloaded automatically and after a restart it will be installed.
On the other hand, we can always do a scratch install to “clean” the device. For this we must restore the iPhone and later install iOS14. However, we have a complete tutorial on this and on how to update to iOS14 in general.
For those still unable to receive updates, do the following:
- log out of your apple account,
- restart the phone,
- login to your apple account,
- restart the phone.
